Prawn & Mint Pulao

Our sunday special goes for this green mint pulao cooked along with prawns..We love seafoods, been born and brought up in seashore city my favourite seafood always goes to prawns, i love to add some prawns even while cooking some veggies stir fries, but nowadays am trying to control myself to add prawns in my stir fries and trying to add oats to make them more healthier..Coming to this delicious, spicy  seafood pulao goes for simple ingredients , its get ready within few minutes.. While cooking the aroma of this pulao itself tempts and makes everyone hungry, this pulao is one of our family favourite which i usually prepare simply with tomatoes but this time since i had a bunch of mint leaves i prepared them as mint flavoured prawn pulao, i served this delicious pulao along with simple cucumber raita and everyone at home enjoyed it much..

Prawn & Mint Pulao

1/4kg Prawns (cleaned)
2cups Basmati rice
2nos Onion (chopped)
3cups Coconut milk
2nos Whole spices (bayleaves, cloves, cinnamon stick & cardamom)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Garam masala powder
Salt
Oil

To Grind:
1cup Mint leaves
5nos Garlic cloves
1inch Ginger (chopped)
3tbsp Grated coconut
5nos Green chillies

Soak rice for 15 minutes,drain the water and keep the rice in a colander, meanwhile grind all the ingredients given in the list 'To Grind' with enough water as fine paste...Heat enough oil in the pressure cooker and fry the whole spices, add the onions saute until they turns transculent, now add the ground masala,turmeric powder, garam masala powder and fry until the raw smell goes away..


Add the prawns saute everything for few minutes...finally add the coconut milk and bring to boil..add the rice and salt and cook everything in pressure cooker with lid closed, cook in simmer for few minutes until the rice get well cooked....

Serve hot with any raitas...
